That cobra commander figure looks really nice, dont think I need another repaint of him though even with the added accesories and cool paint but its looking nice.

Not bad on re-issuing figures from 25th Annversary and onwards.  Though I myself was looking forward to some O-Ring stuff, even if they had to recreate them.  So far, nothing I really want from this year's Retro style line.


Though I suppose the 25th Anniversary line would be consider "Retro" due to the line now being 13 years old.


I am really interested in that 6" Classified SDCC Cobra Commander.  So different looking, and I love the cape.  If they ever decide to do Senpentor in this 6" Classified line, I hope they do his cape in a similar fashion.

I wonder if Hasbro has lost the original o-ring molds. I was really expecting them to do the same thing they did with Star Wars and GIJoe and give us exact replicas of the original toys.

No they destroyed all their old o-ring molds. I'm not sure if it was in an interview or at a convention but they said they would never revisit o-ring styles again. It seems a lot of people forgot this.

Not exactly though.

I for one love the new vehicle drivers. I also like the new "realistic" face paint apps.

It looks like they all sold out except Snake Eyes. I hope brick & mortar Walmart will stock these too.

This all day everyday!!! That Snake Eyes even originally came with a goggled head. Also they had a later Storm Shadow from 2013 v49 that more closely matched the Storm Shadow artwork. Just lazy very lazy.

You expected something more from Hasbro? What does it even matter? They can't even get their over-priced garbage in the stores consistently, exclusive OR full release. What's it matter if its rehashed garbage?

It's almost sad. Hasbeen used to be the best game in town, now they're caught up playing these BS Mattel games . . . and look where Mattel ended up.

So if they had to do a line of lazy repaints on retro cards, couldn't they have at least chosen figures that match the card art?

I admit i am both disappointed and interested on this line, mix thoughts right? disappointed because they're not the vintage O-ring figures i would had love to see them get a chance. On the other hand interested, despite that being the occasion i am still kinda new to G.I. Joe and i never had those 3-3/4" figures before i might as well take a chance to get them, so yeah most likely that haha.

I have Snake Eyes ordered. I would like to get the two vehicles and Storm Shadow but don't need the Baroness.

Also ordered Ashoka, and a few Transformers. I must have about 50 things preordered from half a dozen different stores.

Mixed feelings about this 3-3:4 line.  I love the modern era line but these really are just repacks of the TRU 50th figures and 25th vehicles.  I ordered them anyway but if they are going to do more 3-3/4 modern era Id be much more excited about figures we have not gotten before in the modern era style.   

Did the Awe Striker actually show up as in stock?  I never saw it show up as available.  

Yes, the three figures are back in stock currently if you were trying to get them. The two vehicles are currently showing sold out but I would guess they will return sooner or later.

interesting . the crankcase and hissdriver have new parts. also the prototype of crankcase varies from the in package and the one on the back of the box cover. , kneepads vs no kneepads . Hiss driver looks to have a vest with armor now instead of a solid chest block. so there are some new toolings on these . also old 25th crankcase had a solid fist hand on his left hand new one does not and the head also looks new

Id have to go pull em off the shelf but can say that would be enough to want me to buy them again.
